First I would like to start my letter off by saying peace be upon you all. Writing on this blog has really given me confidence in my expression and writing.
The African people who have inspired or influenced my change and growth are none other than Master Fard Muhammad “God in Person”, The Most Honorable Elijah Muhammad his Exalted Christ, and The Rock and Reminder, The Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan. I picked these 3 great men because of the works, deeds and sacrifices they have brought to America and our human family, and my life-giving teaching.
Before I came into the teaching I had no knowledge of myself. I was blind, deaf and dumb. I had eyes but I couldn’t see, ears but I couldn’t hear, a mouth but I couldn’t speak. My deepest thoughts until I got introduced to the teaching and that blindfold was taken off my eyes, those ear plugs were pulled out of my ears, and the knot had been untied on my tongue, where I can speak. So I give thanks and praise to these men who taught me to love myself and others of all races, creeds or class. These men taught me that God is and always has been a man, and that spirit does not exist outside of our physical bodies, not anywhere in space.
On July 4, 1930 the long awaited “Messiah” of the Christians and “Mahdai” of the Muslims came and blessed us, and taught one from among us, The Most Honorable Elijah Muhammad, a knowledge that will destroy this wicked world and bring in a new Heaven. In 1931 it all began in Detroit when “Allah” met Elijah and taught a man with a 4th grade education the knowledge and wisdom that no scholars can trump.
These are the two men who taught me the total area of land and water of the Planet Earth: 196,940,000. These are the men who taught me the circumference of our planet: 24,896 miles. These great men taught me the diameter of our planet: 7,926. The land is 57,255,000 square miles. The water is 139,685,000 square miles. These great men taught us the speed of thought, which is 24 billion miles per second. These are the men, The Gods, who have influenced me to change though self-examination.
Being introduced to these teachings in prison, where it’s brutal circumstances, being away from your loved ones, not being treated like a human being and being subjugated every day. I was blessed to be in the classroom of God, and still studying in the classroom of God. Since being in this classroom I’ve met beautiful brothers who have studied for 5, 10, 15, 25 years, and in a place such as prison still manage to use their force and power and turn nothing into something.
So I thank Master Fard Muhammad for coming for the Lost and Found. The so-called Negro, AKA Nigga. Because without his coming and raising up Elijah, and “Elijah” raising up The Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan, I don’t know where I would be mentally, morally and spiritually.
So there would be no Darius X, no Malcom X and no Muhammad Ali of the world. There would be no Nation of Islam, there would be no Messenger of Allah (God), and there would be no Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan were it not for one man: Master Fard Muhammad. He is the foundation upon which the Nation of Islam was built, and he is the foundation upon which a universal government of peace will eventually be established!
